Argentine Tango dance technique 14: Boleo – Technical details and exercises

Since our legs move like pendulums, a back and forth movement of the leg without change of weight is possible. We call this “boleo”. This pendular movement of the free of weight leg is more often combined with the spiral movement of the leg described above in relation to pivoting.

  • Keeping your free of weight foot inside edge in contact with the floor, pivot back and forth, letting your free of weight leg to pendulum, carefully keeping the details described above about knees and legs.
  • Make forward and backward ocho moves and practice the back and forth pendulum at each instance of pivoting.
 


Marcelo Solis

I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with the culture of Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dance performer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.
